A Deliberate Life

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/53419719]

There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately – or simply let another day, and daydream, pass.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if we make the decision of our own accord, or life makes it for us. It’s where our heart and soul are that matter. For some, the result is a closer alignment between vocation and avocation, for some it’s a reprioritization of what’s important in life, for some it’s the very real difference between life and death.
Set primarily against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking landscape of Idaho and Oregon, A Deliberate Life explores the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and the outdoors and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.

I’m struggling with this now. I think we all are. I’m 33 with a comfortable job in IT. I’m good at what I do. It comes easy. That ease means I’m not challenged. After awhile, you’re just going through the motions and realize you’re not happy. I wish someone had a magic formula to change that. Luckily I’m taking the steps I need to make me happy. (and no, it doesn’t involve prescription and/or non-prescription drugs)

This film is going to speak to a lot of folks out there. Can’t wait to see it all.
